Adult Formation

Join us every Sunday at 9 a.m. to learn about different topics about the church, current events in the world, Episcopal theology, and so many other interesting topics. We have guest speakers, watch movies, conduct presentations, and much more!

Sunday School and Godly Play

Sunday School follows the formation curriculum from Weaving God's Promises, this is designed for ages 3 to 11 and youth ages for 12 to 14. Each curriculum features learning about the Holy Eucharist, to church seasons around the year, to learning we have the gift of god inside our hearts. During each session, a craft will be completed with a handout to take home. During church service, child daycare is also provided from infants to toddlers.

Pastoral Care

This team provides healing, comfort, meals, prayers, hospital visits, home visits, and care visits for all members of the church as well as those seeking comfort and care outside the church.

Altar Guild

Each church season the altar guild plans, decorates, and maintains the altar for all events.


Stitcher's Group

If you love to stitch, crochet, knit, embroider, needle craft any other way, please join these ladies and gentlemen every second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. Join by bringing something you are working on, and receive a time and space for stitching, mentoring, and a good time.

Kenwood Park Social Club

Every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. come to the Parish Hall for a light lunch and play a few rounds of Spades. Come in for the food, conversation, and good times. If you don't know how to play, we can teach you the game of Spades!


Caring Conversations

Caring about those who suffer from mental illness, join a group who wants to spread awareness, understanding and empathy, and give resources to those who are wanting to receive care.

Daughters of the King

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the vision is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God’s love throughout the world.



We members of CEC do outreach out of our joy from our relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and out of our desire to build on and strengthen that relationship through working together and with ‘the stranger.’ We do outreach as individuals, in welcoming, serving, and giving, and as a community, in our shared ministries.


In 2005, a group of SwaziCompanions was formed at Christ Episcopal Church. We are in relationship with the people of the Anglican Diocese of Swaziland, and to raise funds to build a school in rural Swaziland (now Eswatini). The Christ Church SwaziCompanions have had fundraisers to support the Neighborhood Care Points feeding programs, gardens, home/hospice care and water projects in a country with a high level of AIDS, poverty and drought. We build community, strengthen our faith and enlarge our world as we hold events to raise funds, and visit and interact with the people of the Diocese of Swaziland, Eswatini. All funds raised at Christ Church are forwarded to the Diocese of Iowa office to be wired in entirety to the Diocese of Swaziland and used primarily to support the Neighborhood Care Points (feeding stations) in rural Eswatini.
